The blue jay is another one of those birds I am never able to get a picture of, which is odd since they are everywhere. They're also one of my favorite, I think they're so pretty with all the shades of blue, the patterns on the tail and wings are simply beautiful. For all my troubles in getting a photo of a blue jay, this one was totally by accident. I had stopped alongside the road to take a different photo and spotted this bird in a tree, I was able to switch lenses while keeping an eye on it. I watched it for a minute and go figure it flew down and landed on the side of the road right across from me, I took a few shots and off it flew up into the trees. I think this particular bird was posing for me, it wanted to show off it's awesome colors.
